Wink Don't know if knives can be considered part of this...

...but if you think they do, then you should REALLY take a look at this.

WASP Injection Systems Inc. is marketing the "WASP Injection Knife", a fixed-blade knife that houses a compressed gas bottle inside the grip. The correct tactical/military/defensive use for this weapon is to insert the blade in your target (stab it, that's it), and then push the trigger button on the blade guard to deliver a 24 gr ball shot of compressed frozen gas through the blade and inside your opponent instantly, at an 800psi pressure. Definitely enough to bring down a grizzly bear or a shark, figure out a human being. HERE's a video of the WASP Injection knife used against, well... a watermelon... you get the idea, though. In the West Midlands (UK), the Birmingham Mail newspaper has already launched an "alert" on how deadly dangerous this knife could be on their streets...

The current retail price (can be ordered directly from WASP Inc.) is exactly 379.95 US$, which is pretty pricy for a knife... but well, let's consider it an investment if you're into dangerous activities that can put you in contact with shark, grizzlies, or infidels...

Short tang due to the grip 'magazine'. Blade cannot be solid because of injection channel.

Complex, more fragile, inferior balance... The only thing it has over conventional blades is its injection gimmick.





That being said... it takes one hell of a sadistic mind to come up with this, and purely out of appreciation of that, I ordered one last week.

Well... it's a merely anti-animal defensive object, and even should you happen to be forced to use it against a human being... how hard you think a human body is? Not to mention, should you use it to defend yourself against an attacking animal (a bear, a tiger, a lion, even a shark), it's the animal that throws itself over you, all you need is to raise the knife and it will get inside by the animal's own weight. You only need the blade to be inside your attacker for an inch, maybe less, to achieve the best results from the injection.

I can see some of the application as a dive knife, but honestly, this seems pretty superfluous.

And if it WAS meant to defend against a shark, it needs to be on the end of a long pole with a sling at the very least. A spear with the freeze effect might be handy.

For above the water, it just seems pointless. Be better to make a knife that once you stabbed it in the target could fire off a shotgun shell or something for work on land.

Something along the lines of the Russian RS-1 GRAD (a knife/bayonet with integrated 4-shot .22-Lr repeater) or the Chinese QSB-91 (integrated 4-shot 7'62x25mm repeater)...?

Basically; I think I'd rather have a single shot, even in .410 shotshell, than a repeating set of .22's.

And the way they had to replace the handle to "reload" the CO2 knife... if these guys are serious and want to charge over $300, they need an actual reloading system. Shouldn't be too tough for them to make a catch that lets someone reload that thing as fast as a pistol. Also, a second trigger on the butt would be smart, to allow a reverse grip, or to allow a knife stuck in something but not triggered yet to be set off easier.

"if you're into dangerous activities that can put you in contact with shark, grizzlies, or "infidels"... LOL !

But really, if you're into the habit of getting THAT close to dangerous animals. You have bigger issues than self defense ! It is a rather interesting and strange weapon. If I were diving I would have a powerhead (a long pole that can fire a 12 gauge shotgun shell on contact) and one of these knives for backup.
